Choir (Vocal Point)

WHS VOCAL POINT is a singing group that meets once a week after school.
There is no audition or experience required - we welcome all levels, from beginners to advanced singers. Vocal Point is great for anyone who enjoys singing and wants to improve their technique, and for those who would like to sing in a choir but cannot fit it in their class schedule.
We focus on: improving solo singing technique (posture/alignment, breath support, tone quality), improving group singing technique (harmony, blend, expression), understanding the basics of music theory (rhythm, pitch, sight reading) and practicing choral pieces to perform at school events (mostly pop, rock, r&b, and musical theater).

The club meets weekly, usually on Tuesdays in Room 150/ Auditorium.

Heroes and Cool Kids

WHO WE ARE
The Heroes & Cool Kids program began operating during the 1998-99 school year, is a not-for-profit organization based in New Jersey and New York State. The program was introduced to Woodbridge Township through the Municipal Alliance in 2008-2009 as a pilot program at WHS before being introduced to the other 2 high schools. The program utilizes the services of current and former professional athletes whose personal life experiences enable them to train high school juniors and seniors (Heroes) to mentor 6th graders (Cool Kids)

WHAT WE DO
A group of trained volunteer athletes who are usually former professional train high school juniors and seniors, to mentor middle school students on important life skills, including sportsmanship, conflict resolution, nutrition, anti-bullying as well as positive lifestyle choices highlighting drug, alcohol and tobacco prevention.

WHEN WE DO IT
The program runs each school year from November until May. There are 3 trainings for the HIGH SCHOOL students, which in turn lead to 3 classroom mentoring visits to the MIDDLE SCHOOL 6th Graders. These trainings are crucial and mandatory for each member of the program.

WHY WE DO IT
Mission Statement
"The goal of Heroes & Cool Kids is to promote positive and pro-social behavior in students and to create a caring and disciplined school climate"
*This program is successful because the elementary school students (cool kids) look up to their high school mentors (heroes) as role models, making a positive impact on both. Most of the Heroes have been impacted at the middle school level or participated in 6th grade and are now in a position to be the mentors as juniors and seniors. The goal is to keep this positive cycle going!
